Netspeed Ads is yet another program in the long line of applications that are not what they claim to be. In fact it is an advertising-supported application which is supposed to measure your Internet speed any time you wish. Although the official website, netspeedapp.com, does look genuine, it is impossible to download the application from there. This already makes it an unreliable program that should be deleted from your system. The other reason for you not to keep Netspeed Ads on board is the loads of commercial pop-ups and banners you will have to deal with while surfing the web. This alone could interrupt your browsing experience, not to mention the danger that might be hidden behind any of these ads. In order to keep your system safe and clean, you should remove Netspeed Ads as soon as possible.
Adware is most likely to enter your system either via an infected website or a freeware bundle. Therefore, we recommend that you do not visit unreliable websites and do not download free software from torrent or other file sharing websites. Netspeed Ads usually comes bundled via Outbrowse which is a third-party installer. Our researchers know this installer very well, since it is often used to deliver unreliable apps together with malware infections and potentially unwanted programs such as Webzoom, 2YourFace and many others. As in the case of all these other programs, we advise you to delete Netspeed Ads adware entirely.
Netspeed Ads is no news to our research team. This adware is very similar to Boostweb or BobyZoom which we already covered on our website. Netspeed ads cannot be used for what it claims to do, but instead, it will make use of web cookies and information regarding the links you click, websites you visit, etc. to prepare customized advertisements for you. The only problem with these ads is that nobody can guarantee the safety of the third-party links and the related websites. There is always a chance that you will click on a fake ad that might redirect you to a website that is loaded with malware or might be a part of an online marketing scam. You may think that you can avoid clicking on these commercials but it can happen even accidentally. Remember that it is never safe to keep such adware on your computer; therefore, you should remove Netspeed Ads immediately.
Fortunately for you, it is quite simple to remove this adware from your system. All you need to do is follow our removal guide below. You will also need to delete the Mozilla Firefox extension this adware adds to the browser. Keep in mind that once you have removed Netspeed Ads entirely, your virtual safety may still be at risk because of other potentially unwanted programs or malware infections that may have been part of the software bundle. We recommend that you run a full system scan with a trustworthy antispyware tool to make sure that you have no other threats on board.
